Palisades State Park South Dakota
Palisades State Park South Dakota is located on Split Rock Creek. In the 1870s Split Rock Creek was harnessed to power a large flour and feed mill, and a town called Palisades formed around it. I didn’t see any of the remains of the mill building in the area. Was told there is a small foundation left somewhere from it.
Today we are leaving Hill City, South Dakota and starting to snake our way toward Green Bay, Wisconsin. Last night’s homework was to write down places to stop on the way home. Number one on each list – Badlands revisit before leaving South Dakota.
You know that feeling you have when you miss something? I have had that feeling since we left The Badlands National Park. Like there was something I missed. Something that begged for my full attention but I ignored it. Today, I shall find out what that might have been. If anything.
Deadwood and Sturgis
Plenty of road travel time and interesting spots to stop off at today. Deadwood and Sturgis are where we are setting our sights today.
Sorry for the long break in the middle of our trip. I ran out of storage space to hold all my photos. I’m back on track now to finish out the remaining blogging days for the trip.
Custer State Park Needles Highway Iron Mountain Road
Glorious morning! On the agenda today is Custer State Park Needles Highway Iron Mountain Road.
Woke up early, after sleeping well. Did all the dirty laundry, straightened up the house and enjoyed coffee outside on the deck; with Henny Penny, the hen. Whom, I finally made friends with. No more chasing me around the yard. I did this while I waited for my husband and daughter to wake up.
The Badlands and Wall Drug South Dakota
Good morning! Today we are heading to The Badlands and Wall Drug South Dakota. I’ve decided today is going to be a good day for traveling and sightseeing. Yesterday was just a slight setback and today is a new day. You can read about Day 1 here.
